Masala Idli with Idli Rava, Easy Tomato Chutney

>>  Sunday, January 11, 2015

For the second day, it's back to Idlies. These idlies are made with Rice Rava, that's actually a rava made with rice. I had previously made a carrot coconut rice rava idli. Today's dish can be made with fresh batter or even with batter that's little soured. The tempering makes sure you spice up the batter and it makes a great dish for breakfast or evening.

We made an easy tomato chutney to go along with these idlies. The chutney stays good for a week and you can just warm it before serving.

This joins the breakfast table, so do come join me for Breakfast
